Cheap waterproof phone

Tom Hart 2280
John Lewis online is offering the Motorola Moto G3 for £99 (in August, I think), with 2 years warranty. It’s waterproof to 1.5m,   can be encrypted and runs the latest version of Android, which has monthly security updates.

I have just bought one and it looks pretty well made.

What's the battery life?

I sometimes think of getting dumb phone with long battery life for sea and hill use.

I've an iPhone in LifeProof waterproof casing. But 24 hour battery life makes it useless for cruising overnight.

Well, it's quoted as having a 76 hour endurance rating, but I don't know what that measures. Certainly, Android v6 has majored on battery efficiency.
